About Julianna Kirwin

Your host is Julianna Kirwin. In my own travels I have preferred lodgings with style and history, so I restored this house to reflect it's original character yet maintain the comfort of today. The unique flavor of homes in the southwest is captured within the thick adobe walls of this house. You will enjoy the artistic quality and comfort of this New Mexico casita.

Julianna Kirwin purchased this house in 1984

Why Julianna Kirwin chose New Mexico

Bernalillo is a historic town-one of the oldest settlements in the United States.

What makes this house unique

Great house...convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time & this house was delightful! We were so happy to get out of the Pacific Northwest weather for the month. The weather in NM was great...Juilianna did all she could to make sure our stay at her home was everything we could ask for. She's a great host & the house was very comfortable and in a great location. Would definitely stay there you can walk to the Range Restaurant...what more can you ask for?

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! The feeling was mutual-I enjoy having thoughtful guests like you who treat my house like they would their own. Please come back to the Southwest! I'm glad our weather was so good while you were here. Thanks again for watering my outside plants. All the best!

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Juliana's restored adobe casita! Spacious and well furnished with heated floor...clean and neat. Only negative is bedroom location upstairs (altho a nice spacious bedroom with excellent bed) and bathroom location on ground level. Bathroom also somewhat small. Location near Range Cafe a real's wonderful! We'll stay here again next time we come thru New Mexico. Very unique!

. . .totally delightful !!!

  • 5 of 5

I felt very much at home in this comfortable Casita in Bernalillo (a delight, as well)! Accommodations were as advertised which made me excited, even to see the place in person. Once I was greeted, shown around and welcomed, I would very soon feel most comfortable.

I have longed loved the ABQ/Santa Fe areas, so made a comfortable adventure of museums, galleries and attractions!! And, I felt blessed to spend a little time (at Juliannas' ABQ Gallery) with the Kirwin's, my host(s) for my 9, sweet days!

Wouldn't change a thing. . .

Cozy Casita near Albuquerque

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this cozy casita, we prefer not to stay in cities but yet be close to them. This is the perfect location for our wants! Rural but yet within 20 minutes of downtown Albuquerque, similar to where we live in Colorado near Colorado Springs.

The casita has the New Mexico ambience that we love about my home state with an enclosed private yard. We were impressed with the items that were available for our cooking needs. When one doesn't feel like cooking there are plenty restaurants in the area, our favorite is The Range Cafe a quick 5 minute walk, by the way, very good food and desserts to choose from. We had to have our favorite dish the first night, blue corn red chile enchiladas (I'm salivating writing this).

We will definitely make plans to stay here next time we come to visit family and enjoy all what is New Mexico! Perfect fit for a couple.

Great for family and friends

  • 5 of 5

When bed-space runs short in our nearby home, this great little casita provides comfortable accommodation for the overflow. Julianna is a gracious host and the property is clean and welcoming!
